How Will an Attorney Help With a Spinal Injury Claim?
Spinal cord injury claims often become complicated, particularly because insurance carriers push back vigorously from having to pay out large claims. A skilled spinal cord injury lawyer can handle every aspect of the claim, beginning with conducting an independent investigation to determine liability.
Additionally, a lawyer will ensure that their client is evaluated by a trusted spinal cord injury specialist who can help calculate total expected losses (including overall lifetime expenses caused by the spinal cord trauma).
A lawyer will handle negotiations with insurance carriers to recover maximum compensation while simultaneously preparing the case to go to trial if necessary.
The Long-Term Costs of a Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are incredibly costly, both right after the initial injury occurs as well as throughout the entire lifetime of a spinal cord injury victim. Data available from the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) shows that the first-year medical costs for spinal cord injury can range anywhere from $380,000 to more than $1,000,000, depending on the severity of the injury and the level of paralysis.
The medical costs do not stop after the first year. Every additional year of medical care can reach as high as $200,000.
Unfortunately, these are only the medical costs associated with these injuries. Spinal cord injury victims and their families will also have to deal with the cost of prescription medications, medical devices, construction to houses to aid with mobility, new vehicles to allow for wheelchair access, and more.
